I've got a HP deskjet connected to the Mac (USB), and the Windows PC is in the same workgroup. Network connectivity between the two is established, yet I can't seem to connect to the printer from the WXP PC. I _think_ I've followed the manual just fine...
What am I missing this time?I has a signijer.

Couple of things to check.
First, is your printer Mac compatible? You may need to download a Mac driver from the website.
Secondly, I would recommend buying a print server for your printer. Put it up on the network and print from both computers through the router. That is how I have mine set up. I can print from my PowerBook and my wife's Vaio with no problems.
